Founder Josh Kanter discussed the importance of local elections in a weekend editorial in the Salt Lake Tribune.
From the governor’s race to the state legislative races, county races, and state school board races, this election is about our fellow Utahns who will influence our lives on a daily basis.
So far this year, Congress has passed 195 bills, or one bill for every 1.2 million Americans of voting age — most of which have limited direct impact on us. During the 2011 legislative session, the Utah Legislature passed 477 bills. That’s one bill passed for every 4,000 Utahns of voting age. These laws impact all of us every day.
